Lemon Mousse with Fresh Blueberries is a perfect summer dessert. It is light and creamy and a great way to end just about any evening meal. It doesn’t take much to whip this together, just remember to allow time for it to set.
Lemon Mousse with Fresh Blueberries
4 Tbsp coconut oil
3 lg eggs
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
Juice from 2 large lemons
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp lemon zest
fresh blueberries for garnish
Melt coconut oil in a double boiler over medium heat (you may also put a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water, but do not let the bowl touch the water). In a separate small bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, and lemon juice. Whisk until sugar is dissolved. Add egg mixture to the melted coconut oil and whisk constantly, until the mixture resembles pudding. Remove from stove and place in the refrigerator to cool completely.
While the egg mixture is cooling, prepare the whipping cream. Whip the cream with the grated lemon zest until stiff peaks form. Remove pudding mixture from refrigerator and fold into whipping cream. Spoon into pretty glass flutes and garnish with blueberries and lemon peel. Chill until ready to serve.
I was curious how many of you have a “bucket list”? If you didn’t ever see the movie Bucket List (click to watch the two-minute trailer), it is worth renting. A bucket list, for those of you who may not know, is a list of things you would like to do before you, well, kick the bucket. This past week I completed something on my Bucket list. Paul McCartney was playing in Seattle at Safeco Field to a sold out crowd. It was an open sky, clear blue night, complete with a full moon. And for Seattle, that’s pretty spectacular! He sang for three hours, playing mostly Beatles’ songs, then about two-thirds of the way through, he introduced the old members of Nirvana to the stage. They all jammed for nearly an hour, before Paul wrapped up the concert with “The End”. The tickets were a sweet gift from my hubby for celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. My next bucket list item is Europe. Maybe that will come next year on our 30th. Celebrating under the Eiffel Tower? I could handle that!
It was a perfect night for a concert and a perfect way to celebrate 29 years of marriage!
And lemon mousse with fresh blueberries is a perfect way to end a meal.

The Paul McCartney concert sounds like a lot of fun! An item on my bucket list is ziplining, though I’m a bit afraid of heights. I’ll be doing it in a couple weeks when I go to Maui, and I can’t wait. As always, your recipe looks delicious!
Ziplining sounds scary but quite an adrenaline rush I’m sure. I para-sailed a couple of summers ago over Lake Tahoe. It was amazing and I’m afraid of heights, too! Have fun in Maui!
Yum! That looks good and so easy! 🙂 No Bucket List for me…I bet my husband has one though. Visiting from Flour Me With Love.
Hey Laurie! this looks absolutely fantastic! I’ve never seen mousse made this way. Is it your own invention?
We spent our 18th at the Eiffel Tower. All four kids were with us, but it was still pretty romantic. I hope you get to go! 🙂
It is an adaptation to a few recipes I reviewed. I wanted to try using coconut oil in it, and it turned out great. The texture of the mousse was light and creamy, and the flavor of the lemon was really delicious. If you try it, let me know what you think. Congratulations on all your years of marriage, too! Marriage is hard work, but sweet when you know you get to grow old with your best friend.
Lemon mousse? YUMMY! I love lemon treats. This looks delicious. Pinning and sharing on FB and Twitter. Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Mondays!
How can I make this lemon mousse without eggs?
Hi Nichole, I would try replacing the eggs with chia seeds soaked in water.To replace one large egg, soak 1 Tbsp chia seeds in 3 Tbsp water for 5 minutes until the mixture has the texture of a raw egg. This will change the look slightly, but should have good results & added nutrition of Omega 3’s!
